Reboot UK

 

Reboot UK is a digital skills programme for multiply excluded individuals, focused especially on people affected by homelessness and mental ill health.

Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, the project is run by a partner consortium of Good Things Foundation, Homeless Link and Mind

The project is building a network of organisations and people who are sharing the skills and confidence people need to get online, giving them greater choice and control over their lives.

Reboot UK is changing the way the mental health and homelessness sector are delivering digital skills support. Over two years the project will show how digital technology can be embedded into organisations supporting people affected by homelessness and mental ill health.
